Are you sketching in your journal? If not, maybe you should be. I know, you are thinking to yourself, “But I can’t draw.” Or “I can’t even do a stick figure.” Am I right? Whether you are good or bad at sketching is beside the point. The important part is the act of drawing, itself.
Drawing is good for you. It is exercise for the eyes, hands and mind and it can be a form of visual thinking, an outlet for emotions, and a record of a moment in time.
